APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Jerry W. Peace, of Greenwood, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Justin G., a minor, appeals his guilty pleas to second-degree burglary and simple assault and battery.  Justin argues that his guilty pleas failed to comply with Boykin v.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss Justin’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

KONDUROS, J., CURETON and GOOLSBY, A.J.J., concur.
